Utilizing one needle and very basic stitches, crochet is easier to learn than knitting and is thus more appropriate for kids, who don't need to shape garments or create complex patterns. Using just a simple single-crochet stitch, Way to Crochet! gets kids ages 8-12 making a wide range of fun, kid-friendly projects right away. The book starts with a basic introduction to materials, tools and basic stitches, then offers 20 projects, all using inexpensive yarn that's easy to find and machine-washable. The text is fun and age-appropriate and techniques are illustrated with clear step-by-step photos. Bright color photos of girls making and enjoying their projects will draw girls into the fun, friendly world of crochet!
